I would like to introduce everyone to Carissa of the class of 2016. Carissa is a senior at Maryvale High school in Cheektowaga New York. Carissa is a very fun, sweet and easy going gal. Like most teenagers she loves music, movies, reality TV, texting and staying connected with friends via social media. Carissa is very involved with school and her community. At school, she participates in the musicals, is a part of the student government and a member of the National Honor Society. Carissa also spends a lot of time volunteering with her local church working with children. Carissa plans on attending Buffalo State College in hopes of becoming a special education teacher. She currently volunteers at her high school with the kids in the special education department and it warms her heart.
One thing that surprised me about Carissa is how humble she is about her incredible talent. This girl can sing! I was blown away the first time I listened to her. Carissa mentioned she liked to sing but never mentioned this amazing gift she had. It wasn’t until I saw a video she shared that I got to hear her sing for the first time. She has a beautiful voice and has been signing since she could talk. She also plays the guitar and has played the piano since she was eight years old. She shares videos of her singing on her instagram, and youtube pages.
Carissa’s senior session was so much fun! We met up on a somewhat sticky humid day in August. Our session started off at Island Park and then we finished up the session at Glen Park in Williamsville. We had planned out 4 outfits and accessories ahead of time. I was very excited to work with Carissa because she had a great personality and we clicked instantly during her session preparation. We also share a love of spontaneous dance parties, which definitely took place during her shoot. Carissa was a joy to work with. She was extremely photogenic and every one of images turned out gorgeous.
Carissa it was such a pleasure to get to know you and work with you. I had so much fun capturing this special time in your life. I hope you enjoy your senior year of high school. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for you.
